Estonian Business and Innovation Agency expanded network to KSA, UAE


Estonian Business and Innovation Agency, a joint organization to support entrepreneurship in Estonia and increase its international competitiveness, organized a Trade Mission to the UAE and KSA for the food and beverages sector from 20 to 24 November.

Seven Estonian companies joined the delegation, each seeking to export a natural, organic product:

  • Reztartis produces fiber-rich and protein-rich functional food in the form of powder shakes and bars.
  • Roosiku Chocolate Factory produces vegan organic chocolates and nut-chocolate spreads.
  • Coffee People sources the highest quality coffee beans from around the world.
  • Balsnack is the largest producer of potato chips in Estonia, with a portfolio of over 100 different products.
  • Salvest has 76 years of experience producing more than 300 delicious food products.
  • Haage is bottled water from pure verified sources, such as deep underground reservoirs.
  • Honest Nektar offers premium-quality 100% raw honey from carefully selected traceable beekeepers.

Also joining was the Center of Food and Fermentation Technologies, an R&D company that employs modern analytical methods, systems biology, and synthetic biology principles to develop and introduce innovative food and fermentation technologies.

Starting in Riyadh on 20 November for two days, the companies expanded their network by meeting with F&B outlets and markets to establish trade relations. Saudi Food & Drug Authority Director, Hisham Al Jadhey, informed the delegation about import regulations into the KSA (organic, vegan, halal), certifications, fees, labeling, and shelf-life requirements.

The delegation also visited several businesses while there, including Crystal Events & Catering Co., Nutrition & Diet Centre Co, Panda Hypermarket, Tamimi Markets, Manuel Market, Forsan, and Organic Store.

On 23 November, the Estonian companies traveled to Dubai, where they visited the Dubai Municipality, Food Safety Department. They also visited Spinneys, Lulu Hypermarket, Organic Food & Café, the International Center for Culinary Arts, Trubell Marketing & Trading, SAFCO International, and Let’s Organic Market.

Through visits to Riyadh and Dubai, the delegation sought to enter the Middle Eastern market to build valuable relations with regional businesses and increase Estonia’s international competitiveness, visibility and attractiveness as a place for business, living and studies.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
